It's glory days are over, in need of upgrade throughout and new management. Don't expect a warm welcome and don't try to check in before 4pm ! On a good point the staff in bar and waiting tables are lovely.

This hotel has nothing going for it. We were greeted by a rude owner who started by disputing we even had a booking although we had made one 10 months ago and had the paperwork to prove it. This hotel is situated by the bridge on the way into Skye but I strongly suggest that going closer to Portree is... More

Arrived following a great night in Glencoe at about 1 45 pm. We were unsure re check in time as had contacted hotel on two previous occasions for email confirmation which was never received. Fabulous weather so took our two dogs out for a short walk to be met by a very odd lady who looked at us and said... More

The hotel itself is okay, nice garden, however the older lady owner was one of the rudest people I have met for a long time, hard to believe she is in the business of taking your money. Don't give her it, a most unpleasant experience to have to converse with her. Also the bar is dreadfully stocked and the new... More

Stayed at this place on Saturday23/8/14. As part of a 35th wedding anniversary treat for my wife and myself. We were booked in for 2 nights, we toured the island on the 24th and on arrival back at the hotel our clothing had been packed into our case. We tried to contact the reception but no one would answer, once... More

When we arrived on a cold, wet evening, the door was shut and apparently locked. When we were let in by a most unwelcoming woman, who appeared to be the manager, but did not introduce herself, she did not apologise but said in a most unaccommodating tone that the door was never locked. We were in the garden annex, which... More

We were going to be spending my wife's birthday on the Isle of Skye so I looked for something a bit special. One of the hotels I looked at was the MacKinnon. Their website gave their dinner menu which immediately made it our first choice. Venison and wild boar are not on every menu. When we arrived we were a... More

We arrived very late not knowing if our booking would sill stand (delayed due to a road accident) but we were expected. I had phoned all evening but was constantly directed to an o2 answer machine. I left several messages but no one phoned me back to answer my queries. Not what we expected from a 'country house'. We had... More

We paid £120 for one night bed and breakfast. We were booked into the 'new extension' I use this term very loosely as, like mentioned before it was akin to staff quarters and very cheaply done. On arrival the woman at reception was possibly having a bad day as she didn't welcome us with a smile and very few words... More
